Can you imagine the world without civil engineering? It’s hard. The house we live in, the road we drive in, the college we study at or the hydro station and dam from where we get electricity are all the result of design and construction related to civil engineering. Therefore, civil engineering deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the infrastructures and natural landscapes. Great achievements in human civilizations like pyramid in Egypt, hanging gardens of Babylon, leaning tower of Italy, King Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem, Parthenon in Greece, Coliseum in Rome, Roman roads, Taj Mahal in India, Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai, other mega-structures and many more are in existences due to civil engineers. Simple to high rise building, power plants (thermal, geo-thermal, wind, hydro & nuclear), roads, bridge, tunnel, railways and similar infrastructures are the first responsibility of civil engineers. The other sectors like surveying, flood control, traffic management, construction management, water supply and sanitation, environmental protection are not far apart from civil engineers. The world’s popular and supreme personalities like Leonardo Da Vinci (a hidden engineer), Araniko (a Nepalese engineer), Yasser Arafat (Former Palestinian President), Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Former-Iranian President), Süleyman Demirel (Former-Prime Minister and President of Turkey), Hú Jint?o (Former President of China), Boris Yeltsin (Ex-President of Russia) and many more civil engineers are the pride of their nations.
The engineering admission process is on across the country. If you’re in the stream, chances are you have a lot of choices so select from Universities and engineering colleges. Congratulations!! But ..
Some applicants think, or are wrongly advised, that choosing a College that attracts more applications or making an open/free application will increase their chance of being admitted. How many students applied the last year or over the several preceding years does not make any difference. In fact, careful ongoing analysis of admissions statistics shows that, for equally well-qualified applicants, making an open/free application does not affect your chance of being made an offer of an admission. This is the most important factor while choosing a college. Infrastructure does not only mean a good looking building. It means that whether a college has sufficient amount of infrastructure according to its intake capacity. It includes classroom, administrative building, workshop, computer labs, various laboratories etc. During your four year of graduation you need all these things, so keep it your first preference while choosing a college.
